Peñitas Group's story

The communal bank PEÑITAS is working with Credituyo. The members, who have been friends, neighbors, and merchants for years are: Imelda, Maria de la Luz, Maria del Carmen, Yadira, and Yazmin. Imelda has been married for more than 10 years and has two young children. She sells hamburgers on weekends from her house.

She has aspirations for herself and her children. She believes that with her savings from work she can offer her children a brighter future and that they can learn a profession, an opportunity not available to her. Imelda will use the loan to expand her space and improve her service so that she can increase sales.

In this group: Imelda, Maria De La Luz, Maria Del Carmen, Yadira Guadalupe, Yazmin
